The place was very clean and the service was quite nice. We had lunch here on a Sunday, it was crowded but we got place to sit. The buffet had a good spread.

Had a wonderful time at the rooftop restaurant. The view of the ocean is amazing. The menu is an excellent mix too. Squid tikka and red snapper tandoori is a must try. They have a good range of beverages too. The view the food the ambience under the star studded sky on a full moon night is something else.

Lite breeze from beach, Candle lit tables, Great staff, Delicious food and drinks. Best place to spend evening with food and drinks. Each dish is superb, kudos to the chef. Expensive but worth the extra money.

very slow service, poor quality food...the saving grace was the very sweet barman Thamel who tried his level best to keep everyone satisfied. The ambience is quite nice...you could go there I guess but it is definitely NOT a must do!!!

This restaurant is on the top floor of Hotel Promenade. The open air provides excellent view of the beach promenade and beautiful sea breeze. The menu is simple yet enhanced by Chef Sri Ram's flexible and accommodating nature as he had to create meals not on the menu to suit my request of less spicy meals. The only problem is... More
